Things you want to say but can't

Blimey, and this thread is called Things you want to say but Can't

I loved that there were free toilets at all the gates in the park, including drinking fountains, for anyone that wanted them - even *shock* yummy mummys. It's one of the things that made it such a good place to visit. It's not particularly an issue for me personally, but could be for others. They've been free for the 20 odd years I've been visiting the park.

No, but I do resent suddenly having to pay for it. But clearly the royal coffers are empty - I mean, we're all in this together, right? Austerity my arse.

Shame, really.

20p now for a wee in Richmond park. Or even to get in and use the drinking fountain. And this is a 'Royal Park'. Quite depressing really.

I am struggling with the exact same thought right now as I try to drag myself out to parkrun. But, a very dear colleague had a heart attack this week, and is currently in hospital having had his life turned completely upside down. So I will get out and run, simply because I can. Not everyone is so lucky.

Well done on starting running, I hope you stick with it this time. It is addictive

My local TK Maxx had Thorlo Experias for ??5.99 this weekend, even tho I've tried them and don't like them I was still tempted as they're usually so expensive

What's the rush? Pregnancy and childbirth are just about the biggest things your body will ever go through. You need to give it time to recover, a month might seem like a long time now but it's nothing really.

+1 for the Sam Murphy book.

When I saw my gp last week about neck/shoulder pain (not running related) he said it wasn't worth referring me for physio as it would take at least three months and it would probably have resolved itself by then, and to go private if I had insurance. I don't and can't afford private so that's that

I rely on YouTube and Pinterest etc just find a routine that you like and are comfortable with. It's not rocket science.

Runthrough Richmond Park Half Marathon (June)

Yep I have a couple of Wombles (one with a pumpkin from the October half - aww) and a mini tennis racquet, the two lap Wimbledon races are great but I wouldn't fancy the Richmond pk one, the parkrun route is part path, part grass and part Tamsin trail and about 2k of it is uphill and if I had to do that 4 times I'd lose the will to live! (As a single lap parkrun it is fab tho)

Runthrough Richmond Park Half Marathon (June)

I haven't done it but seem to remember it's basically 4 laps of the parkrun route. Lovely deer medal last year in line with the fab Womble medals for the Wimbledon HMs. Agree Runthrough are great events and have the best medals
